Weeks 6 & 7 NFL Bonus Question: Are You Ready for Some Football

The opinion seems nearly unanimous that the MNF intro is irrelevant. However, I’m surprised that given the high level of production most big sporting events get these days, introductions in general usually suck. Come to think of it, most television shows have uninspired intros as well. However, if you flip on the NFL Network, I think you could cut a segment out of just about anything NFL Films puts together and it would be the best intro to a game that the NFL has ever seen. That is my suggestion, but you guys had some other ones.

Northmen (ANo)
Are you ready for some football? Yes. +1
Suggestion for new MNF introduction song: I'm not a huge fan of the man (maybe one or two songs) but what about Toby Keith. He has the same tone as Hank. Otherwise I stick with my original pick of Big and Rich because they would KILL for country.
Commissioner comments: Don’t qualify your love for Toby Keith. I bet he’d kill for plenty of stuff too, or maybe even for no reason. Folks, don't trust anyone who dresses up in a costume when they aren't at work or it's not Halloween. (And to the rest of you guys, if you missed that CMT show music competition with Rich, Gone Country, then you missed the “kill for country” quote as well as song all time great guilty pleasure television). +3


Ferments-A-Lot (GN)
Are you ready for some football? Yes. +1
Suggestion for new MNF introduction song: Two words. Bubba Sparxxx.
Commissioner comments: Speaking of no-talent Big and I’m-even-more-awesome-than-this-huge-fur-decorated-coat-I’m-wearing Rich, it’s a P-F tradition for me to remind you guys of the glory days of College Gameday intros. Bubba customized a song every week before ESPN decided to put more zing in our zang zangs. Yeah, I'm giving myself +4


The Yeasty Beasties (KW)
Are you ready for some football? America, f*ck yes. +2
Suggestion for new MNF introduction song: May I suggest The Lonely Island? They're humorous rapping skills are quite strong, and it would be nice to have a little censoring on the opening song.
Commissioner comments: I’m on a boat to Rivis Island, mother lovers. This beat cost a lot of mon-nay. +4

BevoXIV (DW)
Are you ready for some football? No Hank, no Frank Gifford, not sure. +2 (b/c I like that answer), -1 (b/c it’s wrong).
Suggestion for new MNF introduction song: Guns and Roses (Welcome to the Jungle)
Commissioner comments: Sure, what could be more played out than Welcome to the Jungle? :) +2

Mr. Smokeypants (KH)
Are you ready for some football? I’m ready for some foosball. +1, close enough.
Suggestion for new MNF introduction song: This is too easy: Cowboy Troy.
Commissioner comments: (Intentionally) Terrible (hopefully) +3


On 2nd thought, -1.

Mad Bomber (KZ)
Are you ready for some football? Yes. +1
Suggestion for new MNF introduction song: Bring back Hank Jr.! but if I must pick I will say Justin Timberlake he brought sexy back so I think he can bring MNF back...what!?!
Commissioner comments: You mthrfkrs don’t know how to act. +3

BlitzKrieg (RK)
Are you ready for some football? Yes. +1
Suggestion for new MNF introduction song: no answer
Commissioner comments: +0

Chicainery (CCa)
Are you ready for some football? Yes. +1
Suggestion for new MNF introduction song: Metallica - we'll stay in a similar vein of well-past-their-prime artists that appeal to a broad segment of the NFL fanbase.
Commissioner comments: James Hetfield’s voice may be a little dark for MNF. +3
Ooh ooh, speaking of Hank Jr.’s comments and BlitzKrieg’s no-answer above, how the hell didn’t BLITZKRIEG have Metallica as an answer?!?! Or if not the Metallica cover, at least Blitzkrieg themselves.

What the heil!

Large Donkey IPA (KSc)
Are you ready for some football? Yes. +1
Suggestion for new MNF introduction song: Guns N Fuckin Roses - Welcome to the fucking jungle bitch
Commissioner comments: Hmmm... That’s an alternate version that I haven’t heard before. B-side from a GNR cover band? +3

Kentucky Wildmen (GF)
Are you ready for some football? Yes. +1
Suggestion for new MNF introduction song: no answer
Commissioner comments: +0

Bob and Gary Destroyers (JH)
Are you ready for some football? I'm ready for some Dixie Chicks. +1 (You lie. I know you, and I know you are ready for some Reba McEntire.)
Suggestion for new MNF introduction song: no answer
Commissioner comments: +0

Beelzebubbles (CCo)
Are you ready for some football? I wanna rock! +0 (Yeah, but what if the Cowboys are on? The correct answer was “Yes”.)
Suggestion for new MNF introduction song: I would like to see a little something from Suicidal Tendencies. How will I laugh tomorrow? When I can’t even smile today? I mean when I hear this after a devastating Cowboy loss....
Love and peace flash through my mind
Pain and hate are all I find
Find no hope in nothing new
Never had a dream come true
Lies and hate and agony
Through my eyes that's all I see
If I'm gonna cry
Will you wipe away my tears?
If I'm gonna die
Lord please take away my fear
Before I drown in sorrow
Last thing that I'll say
How will I laugh tomorrow
If I can't even smile today
and that...is how a Cowboy loss feels.
Commissioner comments: Wow. I forgot Suicidal Tendencies even existed, although I was a little young in the 80s for social commentary rock. +4 for the reminder.


Cacti3 (DCo)
Are you ready for some football? Yes. +1
Suggestion for new MNF introduction song: Chester Bennington
Commissioner comments: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah
yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa 
reeeeeeeeeeeeeed-eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa 
some
footbaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhllllllllllllllllll +4


WhooDat4Life (Lo)
Are you ready for some football? Was tired of that song anyway (Nah man, the correct answer was “Yes” :)) +0
Suggestion for new MNF introduction song: Hey man somebody pull in Journey and have them do a football version of "Don’t Stop Believing"
Commissioner comments: Now THAT’S “well-past-their-prime artists that appeal to a broad segment of the NFL fanbase.” +3


Topo Chicas (A-C)
Are you ready for some football? Yes. +1
Suggestion for new MNF introduction song: Hootie....without the Blowfish.
Commissioner comments: Yeah, but do we want the dude crying every time the Dolphins are on and losing? What a baby. +3


Devil Dawgs (DD)
Are you ready for some football? Yes. +1
Suggestion for new MNF introduction song: An artist with esteem and class.... Big and Rich, of course.
Commissioner comments: NNEEEXT!! +3

13 National Championships (CG)
Are you ready for some football? You bet your sweet ass... +2 (it *is* sweet, thanks for noticing)
Suggestion for new MNF introduction song: U2 and Greenday singing ” The Saints are Coming” even when the Saints aren't on MNF... We are God's team after all.
Commissioner comments: Love you, man. Don’t like that song, so I’m not down with that suggestion. +3
(no, I will not post that video)

Pimp Posse (JB)
Are you ready for some football? Yes. +1, but what is worse; ESPN pulling hank from MNF or ABC allowing Chaz Bono to be on TV. I AM STILL CONFUSED! (Yes, but I don’t watch dancing shows. +1)
Suggestion for new MNF introduction song: Lil Wayne with any version of "green and yellow" for the teams he likes to win on MNF.
Commissioner comments: The idea of Mickey Mouse pulling Hank for Weezy is worth some extra P-F bonus points. +4
“He sh!ttin on these fools, no bathroom”


Booyah! (MN)
Are you ready for some football? Yes. +1
Suggestion for new MNF introduction song: Shaqfu
Commissioner comments: “I got a vasectomy, now I can’t breed ‘em”
Take that Kobe! +4


Naked Bootleggers (JN)
Are you ready for some football? Hell yes. +1
Suggestion for new MNF introduction song: Milli Vanilli could just lip sync the current song.
Commissioner comments: Dude, either Milli or Vanilli is dead, so he’ll have to be CGI in the lip sync. And I think enough time has passed that it’s OK to say “Blame it on the Rain” is a great song. +3


SEC Rejects (ANe)
Are you ready for some football? Yes. +1
Suggestion for new MNF introduction song: Nick Javas.
Commissioner comments: YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! +5


1 Man Wolfpack (MF)
Are you ready for some football? Yes. +1
Suggestion for new MNF introduction song: Well, since all opening TV football games have to have a country and western singer perform the fire me up intro, I think they should bring Willie out, joint, mushrooms and all. On the Road Again, maybe with a little electric guitar, would do it for me.
Commissioner comments: But who are they going to choose after Willie dies mid-season? +3

Team Awesome (SE)
Are you ready for some football? Yes. +1
Suggestion for new MNF introduction song: No answer
Commissioner comments: +0

Rose Ate It (SS)
Are you ready for some football? Racist questions. Please moderate. (HA!) +2
Suggestion for new MNF introduction song: David Allen Coe
Commissioner comments: OK. He’s been making music for like 6 decades, so I guess that meets the MNF criteria. +3

Roughnecks (CW)
Are you ready for some football? No, I'm ready for Hitler to play golf with Netanyahu! +0 (The correct answer was “Yes”)
Suggestion for new MNF introduction song: Hank is not a countrified fool. ESPN frowned upon his 1st amendment right to free speech. It's not like he sung about Hitler in the intro song... He said it on a daytime TV interview. Oh well. Barry Sanders is going to do it the rest of the year and then quit, just like he did in the NFL.
Commissioner comments: This ain’t a politico-themed website, but I’d like to mention that you may not understand either “1st Amendment rights” or what happened with Hank. I’m just saying. This is a +1, not for the politics, but for the lack of a song suggestion.

Hellfish (KSh)
Are you ready for some football? No. +0 (The correct answer was “Yes”)
Suggestion for new MNF introduction song: Justin Timberlake
Commissioner comments: No comment, rib guy. +3


Throwin’ Darts (MM)
Are you ready for some football? Yes +1
Suggestion for new MNF introduction song: No answer
Commissioner comments: +0

Dirt Burglers (D2)
Are you ready for some football? I'm ready for all the unhealthy, fried and fatty food that makes all of the commercials bearable. +1 (I’m assuming you meant “Yes”)
Suggestion for new MNF introduction song: Weird Al Yankovic - I Can't Watch This
Commissioner comments: I like it, but I’m not sure ESPN would be down with the message. +4


Above Average Joe (JG)
Are you ready for some football? Yes. +1
Suggestion for new MNF introduction song: Janet Jackson
Commissioner comments: I think the NFL has Janet and Hank on the same list. +3
I’m assuming that you had this in mind…


… and not this.


Gig’em Baby
Are you ready for some football? Yes. +1
Suggestion for new MNF introduction song: Lil Wayne...fo sho! He has grillz, tats, and a bunch of rowdy friends...
Commissioner comments: True dat. +3

Chumlee’s Banditos
Are you ready for some football? Hell Yes! +1
Suggestion for new MNF introduction song: Aerosmith
Commissioner comments: Very sensible choice. +3
